sb60 The Feelgood is a harder board to ride. If you can't find the infinity online you can order it from neversummer in Denver.

sirgoo We went to tremblant the past weekend and she demo'd the 144 Burton Feelgood, her weight is suppose to ride the 140 but we want to give a 144 a try to see if she likes it or not because the diva was one of her choice and it only comes shortest 144. She was having a bit of trouble maneuvering but she felt great going in faster speed and being more stable and she really like the hybrid rocker/camber profile. At the end of the day, she kinda set her mind to NS infinity 142cm now. She wanted to get the maneuvering she had from her old 138cm board but not sacrifice the stableness a lot so 140-142cm is where we are aiming for the next board. One thing about NF Infinity 142cm is that is going to be hard to find.

sb60 I have an Eminence. It is a true twin rocker c2 (like never summer) with magna traction. Not as soft as the Infinity (which is a great all around board) or the Ollie Pop which also has rocker C2. The Banana smoothie has elliptical camber which I haven't ridden but I think it is the same (or better?) than c2-- slightly softer than the Ollie Pop. Rocker between the bindings and camber under foot so you have the easy turn initiation (less edge catch). Ollie Pop is also rocker C2. I think with her weight the Ollie Pop would be a good choice in a 145.

The thing I've found about Roxy (made by Mervin like Gnu, etc.) is they have a nice flex between the bindings.

IIRC the Banana Smoothie has EC2 profile while the Eminence has C2. I think the latter may be a touch stiffer as well. Ollipop is regular BTX, so you don't want that, and probably too soft too.

edlo 5'2 wife just went from 152 Arbor Push to Arbor Swoon 151 with K2 rear entry cinch and really likes Swoon. No freestyle, no parks, Mammoth. Didn't like Burton Feel Good or Troop. Didn't like the flow binding because the high backs wouldn't stay down.

Zedekias I got my gf the NS Infinity for Christmas this year and she loves it. It's a well rounded board.

sirgoo Thank you for all the kind recommendation. I think I kinda nail it down to the fews

NS Infinity 142
Rossignol Diva Magtek 144

A few question about the Roxy boards.

sb60 Never Summer Infinity is a great board that goes everywhere. The b-pro and the Lotus (now Raven) are kind of stiff. I mostly ride the Roxy Envi which they don't make anymore. You might look into the Roxy Ollie Pop which has rocker/camber magna trax and is softer for her weight. Or the Eminence in a short length.

Other ones I'd consider are: Smokin Vixen 140 or 144 and Roxy Banana Smoothie 142.
Agree totally. It needs more work to find a right size board for her

ridinbend Just surprised my wife this season by upgrading her to a 152 GNU Ladies Choice with the ass. She rides mostly groomers, packed pow and occasional pow day when I take her. However her confidence level is gone through the roof along with her riding progressing a lot also.
